Project facilitation costs covering planning, implementation and resources as part of ODA projects in Ethiopia
To support access to finance for small and medium sized businesses, especially those owned and run by women, and to support productivity and growth in the horticulture, leather and textiles sectors in order to raise incomes and create jobs.
To help up to 10 million people, especially women and children, in developing countries cope with extreme climate and weather events such as droughts, cyclones and floods (climate extremes). This will be achieved by doing three things. By making grants to civil society organisations to scale up proven technologies and practices in the Sahel, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia that help people withstand, and more quickly recover, from climate extremes. By identifying the best ways of doing this, and share this knowledge globally to increase the programme’s overall impact. By supporting national governments to strengthen their policies and actions to respond to climate extremes. These will all contribute to the Millennium Development Goals on the eradication poverty and hunger, and environmental sustainability, and also respond to the Humanitarian and Emergency Response Review recommendation that DFID should integrate the threat from climate change into a Disaster Risk Reduction.
To support the implementation of the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) One WaSH National Programme (OWN –P) over five years (2013/14 – 2017/18) to increase the number of people in rural and small/medium towns using improved sources of water and sanitation facilities. This will benefit additional 1.7 million people and improve access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. This will contribute towards the MDG target by halving the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation and will result in improved household health and socio-economic status of 2.8 million people by 2018.
Building on the successful completion of phase I to improve learning conditions and education institutional capacity by providing teaching and learning materials, teacher training and school grants designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning in schools. DFID support will help enhance learning outcomes for over 21.6 million children (of which 10.54 million will be girls). This contributes towards MDG 2 by ensuring every child attends primary school and increasing the number of children who stay in school by 2017.
UK Aid Match allows the UK public to have a say in how an element of the aid budget is spent. DFID will match fund, pound for pound, public donations to appeals made by selected not-for-profit organisations, enabling them to increase their poverty reduction and development work in DFID priority countries.
To support the Government of Ethiopia in the provision of map based land certificates to farmers in four regions and assist them to fully benefit from increased investment and productivity through the development of the rural land market and its supporting operations. The project will be a driver to increasing income by 20% for over 500,000 households. It will also secure land ownership for 6.1 million households, of whom around 70% will be women
To support the Government of Ethiopia to increase domestic revenues (in real terms and as a proportion of GDP), and to improve accountability and transparency in how the revenues are deployed (public expenditure).
To reduce hunger, improve livelihoods and reduce the risk of famine in rural Ethiopia by (i) providing cash and food transfers, livelihoods advice and access to microfinance to 1.2 million extremely poor Ethiopians and (ii) creating local infrastructure which reverses environmental degradation and improves access to markets and basic services. 85% of participant households receive transfers as wages for labour on public works projects (including 32,000 km of hillside terraces, 3,000 km of rural roads and 400 new or expanded schools); while the remainder (the elderly, those with disabilities, and pregnant women) receive cash and / or food without a labour requirement. This programme contributes towards national and international development goals and DFID’s own targets for reducing poverty and hunger and for building household resilience to climate change and other shocks.
To strengthen the effectiveness of growth enhancing public investment in Ethiopia in order to promote outward orientated, manufacturing-led inclusive growth. The project will finance the provision of technical assistance to Government of Ethiopia ministries and agencies linked to energy, trade logistics and urban development. The beneficiaries of the project will be the Ethiopian population through increased jobs and access to investment related services.
